Nanodromia taksin Grootaert & Shamshev, 2003: 48  , figs 14-18.

Diagnosis

Species with undifferentiated acrostichal and dorsocentral bristles. Legs almost uniformly yellow, hind femur and tibia with brownish ring on middle. Male hind tibia somewhat curved, bearing short squamiform setae on apical half ( Fig. 174View Figs 172-177). Bladder-like structure opening between tergites 4 and 5 (compare to N. narmjeud  Fig. 175View Figs 172-177).

Distribution

South Thailand (Songkhla Prov.).

Habitat and seasonal occurrence

Rain forest, occasional records from October.

Remarks

Since this species was found at low altitude in rain forest in South Thailand it is not unlikely that it will be found in Singapore as well. It should be primarily compared with N. spinulosa  sp. nov. that is its sister species.
